An Authentic Garden Route Experience

Beaches, Waterfalls, Swimming, Kayaking.

Kaaimans River Cottage is a family friendly self catering, self-serviced cottage right on the famous Kaaimans River in Wilderness, Garden Route. It is swimming or rowing distance to the beach with its famous Outeniqua Tjoe Choo railway bridge.

Our accommodation offers uninterrupted chilling and family friendly river fun. We have basic amenities – this is no luxury experience and be prepared for some rough edges. If you are looking to step away from civilization and just enjoy a relaxed river and beach holiday then the accommodation is for you.

We are pet friendly by prior arrangement.

Please be aware that you are going to be in the forest next to a tidal estuary. This is not a manicured environment. It is part of nature and we can’t, won’t, don’t remove mud from the river at low tide; We cannot fumigate the forest; We cannot (and would not, even if we could) remove flora and fauna, trees, plants, wildlife, insects, spiders, birds, snakes, baboons, genet and other wildlife from the surroundings.

If you do not have phobias about natural flora and fauna, nature, mud and rough edges then our cottage is definitely for you, otherwise there are plenty of hotels in Wilderness.
